She Was A Millionaire

Informatie:

Lyrics/Muziek: Syd Barrett

Het lied werd in juli 1967 aangekondigd als de b-kant van de volgende single van Pink Floyd, die als a-kant “Scream Ty Last Scream” zou krijgen. Maar de band was niet tevreden over beide nummers en het werd niet uitgebracht. De opnames vonden plaats in de Abbey Road Studios op 18 april 1967. Syd Barrett nam het opnieuw op voor een solo-album in 1970, maar weer werd het niet gebruikt.

Het nummer wordt ook wel aangeduid als “Millionaire”

Songtekst:

versie 1:

Would you like to be way loyal?

Would you like to be way down?
You’d been turning to a boy you won’t be
Did they tell you you’d been heard to lie?

Round and round and round and round
You fly…

Do you want to pull the curtain down?
Mother hold’em down
I’m bound, I’m bound,
Involved and tortured!
Pretty woman hold my hand

Million, million, millionaire
Million, million, millionaire

Would you like to be where you want?
Would you like to be where you are?
Did they tell you, you were young and willing?
Did they tell you you’d been kicked a lot?

Round and round and round and round
You fly…

versie 2:

Would you like to be well loyal?
Would you like to be weighed down?
Did they tell you you was growin’ on me?
Did they tell you you’d be little I?

Round and round and round and round
You fly…

Do you want to put the curtain down?
Mother hold him down (bad boy!)
I’m bound, I’m bound,
I’m bound and tortured!
Pretty woman hold my hand!

Million, million, millionaire
Million, million,million-aire!

Would you like to be well loyal?
Would you like to be where you are?
Did they tell you, you were young and willing?
Did they tell you You’ve been gigolot?

Round and round and round and round
You fly..
